Is The Uk The Only Country With Schemes Like Help To Buy

Recommended Posts


I'm just wondering whether the UK is in isolation with it's state assistance to help people on the housing ladder be it Help to Buy, shared equity, ISA's or any of the other hair brained schemes you can think of.

Is our government the only mad hatter?

Australia had/has a gifted deposit scheme (some states are unwinding the scheme ) you could also add in negative gearing but that`s more to do with investment property aka BTL ...now what do they have in common with the UK

To be frank I think the UK was exceptional in its lack of government sponsored house buyer support in the years 2000-2007. But of course, their lack of oversight of the banking system during this period could be regarded as de-facto support, particularly to BTL.
